Bag It Forward – Plastic Bag Recycling
Every year, Winnipeg Harvest goes through approximately 1 million plastic bags. In response to that, Bag it Forward was created to give Manitobans more options on how they can reduce, reuse and recycle the plastic bags already in their homes. This program encourages consumers all over Manitoba to drop off their gently used plastic bags at Harvest or their local food bank so they can be reused to create food kits.
BAG IT FORWARD BINS – IT’S WIN-WIN!
Does your organization want to help the environment AND help hungry Manitobans in need? If you would like to participate in the program, come pick up a Bag It Forward bin and start collecting plastic bags for Winnipeg Harvest.
Winnipeg Harvest has bins to accept plastic bags for the Bag It Forward program, as do many of the 380+ agencies / food banks in the community we share food with. We will offer an updated list of locations soon.
Multi-Material Stewardship Manitoba has a list of ALL locations in Manitoba that accept plastic bags for recycling here:
